Lawyers tour to Palestine, Israel & the Golan Heights

22 March-2 April 2020

The only way to grasp the complexities of the occupied Palestinian territory is to witness the situation first-hand. This specialised tour for legal professionals explores the situation surrounding Palestine & Israel through the lens of international law.

APAN and Canadian organisation Just Peace Advocates are supporting this tour for Australian and Canadian legal professionals to participate in this Al Haq tour.

The tour will be based largely in Ramallah and Bethlehem, with trips to Hebron, displaced Palestinian villages, Aida refugee camp, Israeli settlements in the West Bank, occupied Golan Heights, and other locations where you can see what it means to live under occupation. Participants will liaise with a range of humanitarian organisations working in Palestine, UN agencies, diplomats and representatives in the Palestinian Authority.

Participants are not required to have in-depth or professional knowledge of international law, merely be legal professionals with an interest in learning more about the international human rights and humanitarian legal framework that applies during occupation.

The trip costs $3000 pp, not including flights. $500 deposit payable on application, balance by 1 March. Discounts are available for shared rooms.
